New Canik Owner-TP9SFX Break in

Post by thrice » Thu Jul 30, 2020 12:44 pm

Hello all,

First time on the forums. I just picked up the Canik TP9SFX and was looking to hit the range this weekend.

It is well documented that the SFx comes oversprung from the factory and needs a few hundred 124g rounds to break it in.

Of course during this ammo mania I am having trouble finding any 124g in my area.

So the question is, I do have some Winchester 115g, what can I do to limit the amount of FTE's this weekend?

Thanks!

Some recommend leaving the pistol with the slide locked back for a few days. Also, just repeatedly racking the slide to cycle the spring.

Give it a good cleaning and make sure it's properly lubed.

You should be able to tell pretty quickly by the empty brass ejection. When my SFx was new (mid-2017), it would barely eject the empties using 115 WWB FMJ. They were dribbling out the side and landing on my shoe. I had one drop out the ejection port and land balanced on my trigger finger. A couple of boxes of NATO 124 later, it eats anything.

If it flings the empties out properly, you can tell it's not over-sprung.

(*) Buy a couple of boxes of 124 gr. WWB NATO to break in the stiff RSA. Cheap, and shoots great in the Canik! (*)

Welcome from the state of Jefferson. Now, the SFx was your first Canik, which model will be the second?
